Today started with some pretty major setbacks for my plans. I had intended to liveblog from, at minimum, the Game of Thrones event but as you may have seen on facebook or socialcam, the lines were incredibly long. I waited for 2 hours and when the staff indicated that there was no was we, in my section of people in line, were getting in – I decided to bail out.
From there I wanted to find the press lounge so I could recharge my electronics and catch up on some posts. This time the set backs came in the form of misinformation. I must have received 3 or 4 different answers and walked the entire convention center before I found the right information and the right place. Then, when I found the unmarked press room, I was surprised to find a sever lack of power supplies. However, I eventually pressed in to a spot and was able to power up and post a bit.
By this time most of the morning was gone and I wanted to move on.
Since I missed the Walking Dead Panel – Here is the preview of the next season –
PenGo Paint, Creative Tools System
I stopped in to talk to the PenGo team who had sold out of their cool brush pen for Androids and iOS. They use an ‘area’ sensitive model rather than a pressure sensitive model. Take a look at the vidoe to see the pen in action. Their disclaimer, the current iOS does not support the area sensitive api now. They are hoping it will in the future. Regardless – if you draw or paint on the iPad or Android tablet, look in to this pen to see if it’s right for you.
Necomimi Brainwave Cat Ears
These are robotic cat ears that respond to your brainwaves. I try them out.
Marvel Heroes Game
I played for a few minutes but could not really get too much out of it because it was the end of the night and Marvel was handing out free stuff on their stage. This was right next to the demo station. The crowd was going nuts so I could only play for a bit. The game looks cool. The controls were easy and the the ‘world’ will be online allowing for social and collaborative aspects. You can find more info at www.marvelheroes.com
Back for more tomorrow.
